If the Candidate was Baptized at St. Joseph (Rosemount) you do not need to do anything.
If the Candidate was not Baptized at St. Joseph you will need to request a NEW Baptismal Certificate with notations from the Candidate’s Church of Baptism. It must be a newly issued certificate (we cannot accept copies and it must be newly issued within 6 months of Confirmation). New certificates can be mailed to the Parish office with Attn: Ann Brown.
